  6. What a smart idea, Miss Patsy. Daring Do to outrun a fearsome storm! Miss Robin, what werk did your Granddaddy do for that amazing 45 years? Safe trabels, Miss Elizabeth. Merc will be eagerly awaiting your return home, safe and sound. You sure did a wonderful job of looking after Merc by leaving a careful and detailed cookie, meal, and petting list for the Mister. Hab a good visit. Miss Banessa, maybe try some PoopDrops for Ginos's arthriticals? It really helps me. Ma says it is actually called Dasequin (get the one wif MSM). The chews are shapped like brown obersized gumdrops. Velvet and Miss Rachael. Miss Kerry, there is somefing qwite magical about that charming house. Good job helping that liddle bat, Miss RE Carol. Ma is indeed interested in reading that Terry Pratchett's books. He had the kind ob humor, wit, and outlook that speaks to her. Good luck wif thwarting those pesky squirrels, Miss Chris. They will clean out a feeder in no time at all! Ma's day started out normal butt then her boss announced that he's retiring at the end ob June. He is a terrific person and a great manager who'll be hard to replace. They are putting someone else Ma knows well, from a completely different dept, in that role now. The new boss will be just as kind and even keeled but she is gonna miss the old boss a lot. He, on the other hand, habs earned retirement and time wif his wife and grandchill'uns. Ma just gots a sort ob unmoored feeling at the moment 'cuz fings will change and she is a dyed in the wool rut dweller. I'll hab to be extra nice to her to help her frew this. Spirit
  7. Worry not, little one. Merc has a Daddyman and a schedule of every "out" treat, meal and biscuit of his day.
  8. Hello my Friendlies! So the very last little but of snowings was sposed to be this morning and - like usual - we did not get ANY!! Miss Patsy, you are getting our storm that just lefted here!! Essept you will all get something!!! Mister Merc we hope your Daddy will take good care of you!! Hi Miss Ivy!!! How's that Miss Cherry doing? How about Miss Beka? Miss Vanessa, Momma says it mite be time for Mister Gino to have some medicaments, eether sometimes or all the times. Momma started giving Lilly some meloxicam cause she was kinda slow and ouchie getting up and down and doing the stairs, and it has helped a lot for her! Talk with your vet about itnext time. Oooo!!! Mister Dustin!!! Are you guys gonna be all alone by yourownselfs??? That's a long time to not see your Momma and Daddy!! I think I would NOT like that at all!! Oh Miss Rachel and Velvet!!! That got to your house really SUPER fast!! Momma just mailed it a week ago!!! We love you! Miss Nutmeg, Momma wached that Good Homen show and she really liked it!! She readed lotsa Terry Pratchett years ago, but hasn't for a while. Mister Pippin, Momma always thinks of your Momma when she sees ads for houses in the woods or jobs really far away from everything!!! There was one on the FB yesserday for two peeples to work at a cawfee shop and a little B&B on a eye-land off the coast of Ireland. They gots no lectricity or innerwebs tho, so maybe it would not be good for Miss Kerry!!! Nothing going on here today. Oh! Momma ordered a new skwerril-proof bird feeder that's coming today. Daddy broked that last ones we had so we been using old feeders that those skwerrils can eat outta, and they were going crazy and getting so fat!!! But Momma misses seeing the pretty and fun little winter birdies, so she got one those skwerrils can get to. Wishings for a comfortable day for all my Friendlies! BYE-EEEE!!!! AndiPants
  9. This. If at all possible, get a padlock installed on the gate and make them come to you if they need it opened. Otherwise, telling them will go in one ear and out the other. NeylasMom nailed the advice. Drowning out the sound will help a great deal, but make sure they let you know when there will be loud banging or power tools used that have more of a boom sound. That will be a good time to take your pup for another walk.
  10. Gud affernuun frendz. Fower those ov yu inna frozin Norf I gotta tell yu that ower Sprink bulbs ar kumming froo and we gotta littul purkle/burgundy kuller mini Iris in flower awlreddee!

  11. I would emphasize the gate issue with your contractor, but DO NOT rely on that person to spread the word. Padlock the gate shut if your dog can get out there unsupervised.
  12. Yes, although I’m kind of glad this wasn’t posted this morning, before I took mine in for a multiple tooth extraction ☹️. I’m hoping he’s not going to need anything else that requires him to have anaesthetics but it has given me things to look out for on this occasion and I can ask more questions next time without feeling neurotic. Thanks!
  13. This is a great article! Thanks for posting!
  14. You won't have to do something as drastic but in 2013 when I had almost every area of my house remodeled, I rented a nearby place through VRBO for 3 months. I'm having my en suite bathroom redone starting Feb 10 and plan to close off both doors to my enclosed porch (door from the kitchen and door from my bedroom) for Sheba and I to hang out for the duration, 1-2 weeks max I hope. There's a dog door to the fenced side yard and I'll tell the contractor and workers to not enter the enclosed porch or open the gate to the side yard under any circumstances. Good luck with your remodel and acclimating Charming to the new routine.
  15. Ooof! Wut a week! Mummy sez she habs been "slammed" at her werkjob, I do KNOT understand why she wood put up wiff dat! Iffen sumwon wuz slamming me against fings I wood leeb!

  16. Interesting ... https://www.purinaproclub.com/resources/dog-articles/health/saving-sighthounds-from-anesthetic-drug-death?fbclid=IwAR0IkPY3avPhGS2DTl2BAG8_lTFXuEOQ7ilMnAeRBTWuo20kLIghiW-e2ck
  17. Change her routine now. Ideally you would have done it sooner, but at least this weekend follow the routine you'll follow starting on Monday, including feeding her upstairs. And have some extra special treats ready to go to keep her busy - bully sticks, stuffed frozen Kongs, food dispensing toys, etc. I would also consider noise machines, air purifiers, fans, etc. to drown out some of the noise. If she's sound sensitive at all, this could make it much worse and if she's not, you don't want her to become noise sensitive. Jealous of your kitchen redo. Mine is so far down the road. Hope you'll share before and after photos in off topic.
  18. Hello! Velvet here! Just popping in to say that Mum got a bit leaky because the crystal for Dippy has arrived (thank you Miss Chris for organising it) 20200116_150324 by Rachel, on Flickr I haven't been up to much. No snow here, just rain rain rain. Catch you later, if I'm not asleep. Velvet
  19. I have a 9 y/o female greyhound named Charming. She is fairly set in her ways at this point, especially with her morning routine. But starting Monday morning we will have a crew start work on a complete renovation of our kitchen. I will have to make sure that Charming is upstairs during the time they are working (my 22 y/o son will be home to take care of her, as he takes online classes). They are supposed to arrive between 7 and 7:30, so right during her morning walk time, but then she comes back and normally would have breakfast in the kitchen. I'm thinking I will need to lure her upstairs and she will have to eat up there and then turn her over to my son before I leave for work. I'm going to block off the stairs completely and hopefully she will be content to hang out in my son's room, but at least this will give her the option of using other upstairs rooms. (She sometimes likes to sleep in my room depending on where the sun is coming in.) Any other suggestions to help her get through this highly disruptive time? I'm a bit worried I will have a hard time getting her to go upstairs with all the activity and fun, new people to meet/pester. She loves everybody! Even her bio when we adopted her 7 years ago said: "She wants to be where the people are." So that is what I will be dealing with. Thanks in advance for any help. Becky
  20. Sigh. Blizzard warning from 2:00 am Saturday thru supper time Saturday. Snow and WIND start this afternoon Sigh Be safe out there folks
  21. TGIF, and the temp is 20 degrees lower than yesterday, with wind. I don't mind it being chilly, but the wind can faff right off. I think G is having some arthritis, he was xtra snarky to the cats this morning and growled when I pulled him away from another dog. Seems to happen more often when the weather changes.
  22. Anyone know of a therapy dog in or near Portsmouth, NH? Marlane's mother is in the hospital and needs "distraction". Marlane is the lady Sherry introduced me to and where Merc spent the weekend with Blue.
  23. Merc! You are being abandondoned! How will you get fuds and bikkies? Ivy, werried houndie
